STATE LAW MAKERS AT WORK
DOINGS OF THE
DOWN TO SOLID WORK
Senate and House Busy as Bees Mak-
ing Laws for the States—
Some Bills That Have
Reappropriation Bill Passed
In order to relieve the various state
departments and state institutions,
whose finances are tied up by the
court’s decision, the senate passed fiu-
ftlly the bill by Wynne reappropriating
the sums covered by the appropria-
tion bills, which were recently declared
Invalid by the supreme court on ac-
count of Governor Haskell’s action in
trimming down items in the bills. The
total amount was $2,681,812, which rep-
resents the amounts as trimmed by
Haskell, leaving matters in the same
shape as though the court decision had
not been rendered. The state auditor
has held up all claims under these
appropriations since the court's de-
cision, and it was considered desirable
to rush the bill as much as possible,
so that the people affected inky get
• heir money.
Resolution Memorializing Congress
Adopted Without Dissent
The senate of Oklahoma expressed
to the world at large its disapproval ot
polygamy, Monday, when it adopted a
concurrent resolution presented by
Senator Guy P. Horton of Altus, me
moriallzing congress to propose a con
stitutional amendment forbidding poly
gamy anywhere in the United States
Senator Horton stated that the reso
lutlon was one prepared and pushed
by the national W. C. T. U.
Other Exexcutives Applaud Cruce
That Governor Lee Cruce made no
mistake in his recent message to the
Oklahoma legislature in which he rec-
ommended to the members of that
body the passage of laws beneficial to
the people of the state, and that he
was riht in the kindly advices and sug-
gestions that he made to the law mak-
ers is the substance of letters of com
mendation received by the governor
from the chief executives of various
states in the union.
Governor Harmon, of Ohio, men-
tioned as democratic nominee for
president in 1912, and universally
considered one of the strongest men
In tlie democratic party, was espe-
cially commendatory in his letter to
Against Gun Toting
The bill by Representative' Cham
Jones prohibiting the sale of pistols,
brass knuckles and sword canes, and
providing that no one shall be allowed
to carry a concealed weapon, was
passed to engrossment in the house
February 11. That the members of
the legislature are against pistol "tot-
ing” is certain, because the,third vio-
lation of this law carries with it a pen-
School Bill Is Up
A bill ha3 been introduced in the
house providing that each city shall
constitute a separate school district,
provided that any incorporated town
which maintains a high school course
such as may be prescribed by the state
board of education governing high
schools, may by a majority of all the
votes cast at an election called for that
purpose, be governed by the provisions
of this article.
An amendment to the Oklahoma con-
stitution, forbidding the imposition of
property qualifications for voters, was
proposed by a joint resolution intro-
duced Monday by Senator William M.
Franklin of Madlll.- It is in the form
of a new section, which reuds us fol
"No property qualification other than
that now prescribed by the constitu-
tion of the state shall ever be imposed
as a pre-requisite for registering or vot-
ing, and all other qualifications which
may hereafter be prescribed, as well
by the legislature as by the people,
shall conform to tl^e constitution of the
United Stales and the amendments
Pass Durant’s Vitalizer
The house of representatives Thur»
day showed no inclination to withdraw
from the deadlock with the senate
over the capitol building commission,
but on the contrary passed Speaker
Durant's bill vitalizing the capitol com-
mission and sent it to the senate.
The situation now is that the senate
has a house bill giving the capitol
commission fullest power to build the
capitol, while the house has a bill
abolishing the capitol commission and
letting the work of building a capitol
to the state board of affairs.
To Place Warrants On a Par
To establish the public building war-
rants of the state on a par’basis is
the purpose of a bill introduced by
Senator I1. J. Gouldlng of Enid. The
bill amends the present law by in-
creasing the rate of interest from 5 to
6 per cent, makes warrants receivable
by the state treasurer and commission-
ers of the land office as security for
state deposits, and cuts out the proviso
of the old law which stipulates that the
state shall not be liable for the pay-
ment of these -warrants.
Dispensary Law Abolished
The agreement of both houses of the
legislature on the provision of the new
prohibition enforcement bill which
abolishes the dispensary system, both
as to state and local agencies, marks
the passing of c^ne of Oklahoma’s
unique experiments in legislation,
which has attracted nation-wide atten-
tion, especially from those who were
interested in the new method of reg-
ulating the liquor traffic. The idea is
admitted by those who put it into
force in Oklahoma to have been a
failure here and it is not likely to be
tried in any other state after the ex-
perience with it In this state. The
new measure leaves enforcement to lo-
cal officials under the direction of the
No State Bankers On Board
It now appears that the state bank-
ers will not have even the consolation
of a possibility of getting representa-
tion on the state banking board. The
house committee on banks and banking
has about decided to cut from Senator
Roddie’s bill, which haB passed the
senate, the provision making the state
banking board to consist of the gover-
nor and two appointees. This action
of the house committee will leave the
law as it now stands, a banking board
composed of five state officers acting
Deficiency Bill Gets to Senate
The deficiency appropriation bill for
the various state departments and
state institutions for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1911, was presented
in the senate by the appropriations
committee. The deficiencies in the
bill total $208,739.03. This includes
the full allowance until the end of the
year for all departments except the
“Too Late Babies” Ask Help
The Oklahoma legislature was asked
to take the side of the "too-late ba-
bies” of the Cherokee nation in a con-
current resolution introduced Thurs-
day by Senator E. M. Landrum of Tah-
lequah, himself a member of the
Cherokee tribe. The resolution is in
the form of a memorial to congress
protesting against the bill introduced
by Senator Owen,'"giving the court of
claims power to inquire into the status
of those babies and their allotments.
The Cherokee rolls were closed in
1902, but were reopened in 1906 to
permit the enrollment of the children
born between those dates. The reso-
lution seeks to prevent any interfer-
ence with this latter enrollment.
Resolutions were received In the sen.
ate from the convention of county
judges favoring an orphans’ home on
the west side of the state and also
endorsements for the home already
maintained at Cornish.
Co'ored Training School
A bill providing for an appropria-
tion of $50,000 for u state training
school for colored youths at Kingfish-
er, has been Introduced in the bouse
by Representative King and in the
aannte by Senator Bronftlee.
Money tor Public Buildings
The bill by Thomas and Franklin,
appropriating $304,975 for aditionnl
buildings at the six district agricul-
tural schools, which excited consider-
able discussion when it was first un-
der consideration in the senate, was
passed finally without comment or de-
$10,000 for Bridge
An appropriation of $10,000 has been
asked by Representative Peery in a
bill introduced in the house, for build-
ing a wagon bridge across the Cana,
dian river in Blaine county.
Memorial to Congress
A memorial to congress passed by
both houses, was one by Senator Red-
wine, asking legislation looking to the
sale of the segregated coal lands.
Woodson’s Bill Recommended
The house of representatives rec-
ommended for final passage Woodson's
railroad bill. It extends the time in
which domestic railroad incorporations
may begin construction work, and its
author says that It will do much toward
starting some actual railroad construc-
tion in Oklahoma.
“Kate’s" Bill Passed
"Kate's” bill, the measure by Repre-
sentative Tehee and Genator Landrum,
giving Miss Kate Barnard, sta^e com
missioner of charities and corrections,
power to Intervene and protect the
rights of orphans, was among the bills
passc-d by the house Monday.
Offers Fair to State
A communication was received in
the senate Friday afternoon from the
Oklahoma State Fuir association of-
fering to sell the buildings and other
property at the fair grounds In this
city to the state for fifty cents on the
dollar of cost on the condition the
state will hold the annual fair in this

funds will be turned loose in the Osage

mittee on Indian afTairs Thursday
agreed to report favorably becomes a
Again Canada Is to tho fore, and has
secured at the National Corn Exposi-
tion just closed at Columbus, Ohio, the
magnificent Colorado silver trophy val-
ued at $1,500, for the best peck of oats.
T-hese oats were grown by Messrs. Hill
& Son, of Lloydminster, Saskatchewan,
and, as may readily be understood,
were of splendid quality to have been
•o successful in a contest open to the
world, and in which competition was
keen. At the same Exposition there
were exhibits of wheat and barley, and
In all these competitions, the grain
shown by Canada secured a wonderful
amount of attention, and also a num-
ber of awards. During recent exhibi-
tions at which grain from Western
Canada was given permission for en-
try, it always took first place. At the
Spokane Interstate Fair, last fall,
where the entries were very large, and
the competition keen, the Province of
Alberta carried off the silver cup, giv-
en by Governor Hay, for the best state
or province display, and a score of
prizes was awarded Canadian exhibi-
tors for different exhibits of wheat,
oats and barley threshed and in the
sheaf. Vegetables also received high
awards. A pleasing feature of these
exhibits was they were mostly made
by farmers who had at one time been
American Citizens and were now farm-
ing in Canada. The Department of
the Interior is just in receipt of a mag-
nificent diploma given by the Tri-State
Board of Examiners at the Fair held in
Cincinnati last fall for agricultural dis-
play by Canada.
The Surveyor-General of Canada has
just completed a map showing that a
large area of land was surveyed last
year In the northern portion of Sas-
katchewan and Alberta in order to be
ready for the rush of homesteaders to
that district during the coming spring
and summer. It is understood sur-
veys covering several hundreds of
thousands of acres will he made in
addition to these during tho coming
A return just issued by the Domin-
ion Lands Branch shows that 48,257
homestead entries were made last
year as compared with 37,061 in 1909;
of this 48,257, 14,704 were made by
Americans. North Dakota coming first
on the list with 4,810, Minnesota gives
2,528, South Dakota 1,133, Wisconsin
745, Washington 730, Michigan 706,
Iowa 645, while other states show less,
but with the exception of Delaware,
District of Columbia and the Indian
Territory, every state and territory
The prospects for an abundant crop
in all parts of Western Canada for
1911 are said to be excellent. In the
districts that required it there was an
ample rainfall last autumn, and the
snow’fall during the present winter is
greater than in many previous years.
Both are essential factors to the farm-
ers, who look upon the moisture that
thes® will produce as being highly
A large Immigration from the United
States is expected, and the demand for
literature and information from the va-
rious Government Agencies located at
different points in the States is the
greatest it has ever been.
»Since the above was written word
has been received that in addition to
honors won at Columbus, Ohio, Cana-
da won first and second on wheat and
first and second on oats, as well as
Norman Cherry of Davis, Saskatch-
ewan, who was in the reserve for first
on wheat, secured the award, with G.
H. Hutton of Lacombe, Alberta, sec-
ond. J. C. Hill & Sons got first on
oats besides the silver trophy. G. 11.
Hutton took second In oats.

Granite of the South.
When one speaks of granite the
mind naturally leverts to Vermont. It
Is difficult to associate granite with
any section of North America outside
New England, yet It must now he ac-
knowledged to the credit of the South
that Georgia. North Carolina, Mary-
land and Virginia are producing large
quantities of stone of good quality
which Insures the South a place in
the market at any rate.
The annual output is now worth
about $”.,500,000 and the Industry is
growing. It may be of comparative
interest to know that New England’s
output Is about $9,000,000 worth of
Plak Eye. Epliootle

In Brooklyn a few weeks ago a Sun-
day school teacher asked his class of
hopefuls this rather debatable ques-
“Who will tell me what is the chief
end of man?”
From the most attentive pupil came
forthwith this answer, "To glorify God
and annoy him forever.”
